    Ume available in the US?

    Does anyone know where I could get my hands on an Ume in the US? I've checked places like Evergreengardenworks, but seems most people have had trouble getting the stock. Not necessarily looking for the most developed specimens but any sources would help

    Broadleaf division - Leo's Prunus Mume 'albaplena'

    Hi all, I'd love to sign up for the contest with this cutting of Prunus Mume. I purchsed it for 7.99 Euros few months ago (possibly May?). It's just been potted from a plastic container into this clay one, hasn't received any style whatsoever, yet.

    What to do with this ume nebari?

    Hello everyone, I have a question that maybe the community here can help me figuring out. I realised that the nebari of my prunus mume -which I thought it was just one solid piece- is actually made by two separate "units" (I don't know either calling them trunks or roots). Here's a photo of...

    My Prunus Mume is begging for your help (again!)

    The story is I was never really convinced this Ume could stay the way it was when I got it. Many of you helped me out with good suggestions last year, unfortunately airlayering it is out of question as it is almost impossible with Prunus. So today I woke up decided to chop it down (it's winter...

    Prunus Mume curling leaves (Summer here)

    My Ume after flowering beautifully last winter had a very fast growth rate in Spring. Now it's middle of the summer in the Southern hemisphere and its leaves are curling and some (not all) are showing holes, like insect bites. It's on a bench, outside with other bonsai and none show the same...

    Prunus mume questions
